Gioteck FR-1 Steering Wheel

Gioteck, the award-winning independent peripherals designer and manufacturer, has announced the release of the FR-1 Wireless Racing Wheel for PS3.

Delivering a truly immersive and realistic driving experience for all petrol heads, the ergonomically designed FR-1 steering wheel boasts a number of features to ensure you feel like you’re in the fast lane.

As well as looking the real deal with a carbon fiber style finish, the FR-1 even feels like you’re sat at the wheel, featuring rumble feedback so you’re aware of every bump, crash and skid on the track.

The inclusion of precision ‘nudge’ buttons reduces over-steer and helps guide users in the right direction when the slightest turn of the wheel won’t do, ideal when you’re locked in a straight-line head-to-head to the finish.

Any advantage over your opponent is vital, so the FR-1 includes interactive buttons and utilizes the best component parts for rotational precision, as well as a contoured D-pad for quicker selection control.

Styled on the latest automotive materials and trends, the FR-1 has a look that will stand out from the rest, check it out:

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
